I cannot see why this is such an attraction. Granted we were there in November and there was scaffolding across half the buildings, but I seriously don't see what all the hype is about. Could easily miss this one off the list. Sorry guys.

I’m sure if you go in Summer, it would be nice not only for taking pictures but also for leisure. It’s a hotspot for visitors. It’s also a starting point for the protests of the lately Yellow Jacket movement in Bordeaux.

If you are visiting Bordeaux this is one of the first places to see. Best at sunset or at night when everything shines

This is a really cool place to take photos. If the sun in behind you, take a photo and you can get your reflection in the tiles! A must see in the day and at night.

Wherever you look, you’re just bound to see a beautiful view. Either the historic buildings facing the fountain, or the banks of the Garonne just flowing alongside.

Stand in the square and look at the classic architecture with great symmetry. Then turn around and look to the river and the busy pedestrian quai which flanks it. You have a sensation of immense space and beauty.

Great sight to take in. The fountain was off when we came, and part of the building was being refurbished, but still very much worth visiting.

Yes, the building on the left is a Free museum (Musée des Douanes), the building on the right is a government office, and the center one was the USA ambassade, but for now (for 8 years exactly) that's a restaurant, you have... More
